There’s this group. . . they lead retreats to try and help men feel more OK with all the different sides of being a man. I went on one of those retreats because I was so intrigued.

 

It was f*cking amazing.

About the Training

The Training is a weekend experience where men are provided with practical and foundational tools to use in their everyday lives as they embark on a transformational journey and fulfill their potential.

The Training is a “Young Warrior Gateway” version of the New Warrior Training Adventure (NWTA)- the most recognized and respected modern initiation experience for men in the world – which means that we’ve taken this incredible training and adapted it to meet the specific needs and interests of younger men.

The training provides the critical skills required to improve leadership, emotional awareness, communication, interpersonal relationships, self confidence, and much more.

These skills allow individuals to experience more meaningful relationships with friends, family, and loved ones. They discover their purpose and meaning and with the support of others they put this knowledge into action

These tools have many benefits to men who participate in the training. Many experience more meaningful relationships with friends, family, and loved ones. They discover purpose and meaning in their lives as well as have the support and motivation from others to take that purpose and put it into action.

AARON TAYLOR: Green Bay Packers

That was the most powerful 48 hours I’ve ever had in my life. I left that weekend a different person. And what I was able to do through that process was take a good, hard, honest look in the mirror. . . in a way that was safe, in a way that I controlled, in a way that was very healthy.
